The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) supports bicycling as a viable form of transportation and as such encourages safely operated non-competitive bicycle events. The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines that assist non-competitive bicycle event organizers in hosting events that are successful and safe for all roadway users. This is a dynamic document and reflects WSDOT’s commitment to the safe use of state highways for all users.

WSDOT works with event organizers to help with planning special events that take place within the highway right-of-way.
